Running windows xp - printing to a network printer through Novell Iprint client.  However, each time you go to print something, the default printer goes back to cute pdf writer.  I have deleted, re-added the printer, and each time, set it as the default, but each time it does not stay.

Any ideas ?

    You could try deleting the pdf writer, but when installing the printer, make sure that you are logged in asd admin that way it should stay as the default printer.
